Operation Black Veil: The woman in the black veil has told FBI Special Agent Jackson McGraw that Salvatore Martino, former don of the Martino Crime family, is seriously ill. Speculation is that his son wants to kill Eloise Hill, the girl who put his father behind bars, before he dies as a tribute to him.
Violet Kramer is a reporter who has a contact within the mob giving her information about the ladies already dead, who they are looking for, & who is next on the list. The mob is after any woman in the Witness Protection Program who matches the description of Eloise. Violet is a dedicated reporter & she won't release the name of her source. She also tries to help her escape from the mob. But Violet's articles are disturbing the mob. Detective Clay West asks her to withdraw until the mess is cleared up. She won't, believing that she has a story that needs to be told, & that all woman in the Witness Protection Program need to be warned. However, she's now the next target, & in spite of herself, Clay is determined to protect her.
I found Violet quite a hard character to relate to in the beginning, but when her past is finally explained, I did think about whether I would have acted differently under the circumstances, & came to the conclusion that actually, I wouldn't have. This helped me understand her "I'm going to do it my own way" streak so much better.
A good continuation in the "Protecting the Witnesses" Series - this book is #2. You really do need to read these books in order as each book, while a story on it's own, also has a plot which runs & develops through all the 6 books, building up to the grand finale in book 6. This means that you will not only want to read this book, but also the other 5 in the series! So if you are looking for a one off story to read, then this is not the book for you. However, if you are short of reading material & want a series to get you going, then this series will be ideal!
